For those who don't know or have forgotten, that's Larry Platzek,
longtime member of the Linux community.  A very long time ago
(2005-ish), after founders Art Tyde and David Sifry bowed out of BALUG,
Larry Platzek and Dick Verna ran BALUG (including primary listadmin
duty) and coordinated the meetings at Four Seas Restaurant in
Chinatown's upstairs banquet room.

I think he's been living in the South Bay lately, but wouldn't swear to
it.  My efforts to find current contact information are coming up dry.

Lessons to learn:

1.  Don't register your domains at GoDaddy.  ;->
2.  Make sure your whois data gives meaningful out-of-band contact
3.  If you have only two authoritative nameservers, shoot your 
    admins and get some who understand the RFCs and how to administer

It might be worth asking on balug-talk if anyone has a telephone number
or alternate e-mail address for Larry.

If only because, y'know, we're all mortal, and I worry when people just 
seem to vanish.
